I’ve finished my first novel!
Well, finished writing it. Now it gets to sit for a month or so and then I get to tackle editing. But, for now, I’m going to celebrate.
Some stats for No More Lies:
Final word count: 116,335
Date started: The first attempt at it that was going to be a 3000ish word short story: I honestly don’t know. I first sent a backup of it to myself June 5, 2011, but I’m pretty sure it’d been written for a while before that.
The date I started the revision that became the actual novel: July 3, 2013
Date finished: July 31, 2014
So, depending on how you look at it, I’ve been working on this for either a year, or three years. Either way, I’m damned glad to be done with the thing!
Look for it in your favorite ebook store next spring!
